Where To Buy

Cage-Free Living

Because a healthy hen makes a wholesome egg

Dakota Layers' cage-free eggs are laid by hens who can roam their open indoor environment and enjoy constant access to high-quality feed and clean water. Our hens freely explore their spacious environment and enjoy plenty of amenities and activities that promote their natural behaviors.

Our Cage-Free Practices

Hens in our cage-free housing system can freely roam the ground level of their barn and explore the lofted nesting and perching areas. They have constant access to clean water and nutritious feed, developed by a poultry nutritionist. Our hens can also enjoy practicing natural behaviors and interacting with enrichments such as nests, perches, and scratch areas.


Nest boxes facilitate egg collection, minimize hen pecking, and keep eggs from litter. A large flap also covers the nesting areas and the dark environment encourages our hens to lay their eggs.


Perches allow hens to rest naturally by enabling them to move into the lofted nesting system or down to the floor area as they please.

Scratch Areas

Our hens have access to the litter area to scratch, forage, and dust bathe.

Free-Range Living

The best of both worlds

Our free-range hens live in barns designed to meet their natural needs and have the freedom to leave their barns to spend time outdoors. They also enjoy constant access to healthy food and clean water along with private nesting spaces.
